    I saw this article and thought I would share it.

    "Declining revenue from search advertising and rising costs saw Google's quarterly results fall short of Wall Street's expectations.The search giant was punished for an 8% drop in the average price of cost-per-click, which includes clicks related to ads served on Google sites and the sites of network members.According to the company, the drop in the prices advertisers were willing to pay was down to a series of circumstances, but - despite a 34% increase in paid clicks - the out-of-character setback gave investors the jitters."The major question is: is this a one-time thing or is this something that is going to continue because the nature of the business has changed?" Mayuresh Masurekar, an analyst at financial advisor Colins Stewart, told the Reuters news agency.
    The major question is: is this a one-time thing or is this something that is going to continue because the nature of the business has changed?
    According to analysts, the cost-per-click decline was the first time the benchmark had fallen since 2009.Google still reported revenues of $10.58 billion for the last three months of 2011, 25% more than during the same period of 2010, with company CEO painting a brighter picture than stock watchers."Google had a really strong quarter ending a great year. Full year revenue was up 29%, and our quarterly revenue blew past the $10 billion mark for the first time," said CEO Larry Page."I am super excited about the growth of Android, Gmail, and Google+, which now has 90 million users globally - well over double what I announced just three months ago."Revenues from the UK totalled $1.06 billion, representing 10% of revenues in the fourth quarter of 2011."

    I cant post yet, but the author is Stewart Mitchell and you can search it by the title and it should come up.

    Anytime the nature of the business changes G will make sure it changes back in their favor. Thoughts?

    Well, revenue was still up by 29% from the years previous quarter so I don't know why anyone would be freaking out over at google.

    Of course there will be more rev from last year ,as the industry as a whole is growing - more people are using the interneteveryday for business, this fuels the growth rate. G projected rev to be much higher than last year for that reason. The problem was they didn't hit that mark and their budget was based off those projections - hence the"rising costs".

    G's main rev is brought through their ads. If it's so easy that everyone knows how to rank via SEO, why would I use the majority of my budget on PPC or p a id a ds? G shakes things up, changes the game and now pushes people back to the safest most exp way to get traffic to their web site - through their p.aid ads. Bet they wont fa.ll short next qu.ar.ter.

    The number of sites using Adsense that have been taken off the first page of results will be huge. I would take a guess that the number of increased people using Adwords after this update will be less than the downgrade of profits from Adsense related units.

    Not at all- when one leaves another comes. They have changed the game, look at the threads about users asking how to approach their SEO clients to explain whats happening. Granted new methods and abilities to rank will come, but consumer confidence in SEO is down right now and they have to make up the traffic lost right now. I'm seeing first hand budget swings as well as hearing it from my network of friends. Currently in the present SEO results are down and their costs are up = good for G.

    Look at this on the Google side.

    Advertisers will generate small amount of traffic from the content network and will move to the search network bidding on keywords and spending money there. Google will get all money and increase keywords costs.

    This is bullshit what they say about better search results and shit like this. This is money and they are monopoly. There should be a public institution which monitor search engines lie google bing and others as right now they do what they want just to make money and nothing else. I hope we're closer to such institution in every update.

    My english is really poor but I hope you get what I mean.

    I agree, that's why I was saying for right now. It's the beginning of a new cycle.

    Point is that Google bragging with success on their plus network is complete BS. There's really no avarage people using it.

    PS. Have about 30 accounts there...
